DE Blake McClain of Jacksonville said Tuesday night he has made his decision between USC and Nebraska and will announce the choice Wednesday at 9:00 AM at his school.

McClain committed to Nebraska last week on an official visit there but USC continued to recruit him hard and worked their way into a 50-50 position with him before he made his decision Wednesday night after discussing things with his family.

"It was very tough," McClain said. "I did a lot of talking with my parents and we went through a re-evaluation of everything. But I think I made the right decision."

Asked if there was one particular factor that led to his decision, McClain declined to say to avoid tipping his hand on the choice.

McClain talked Tuesday night with USC head coach Steve Spurrier and recruiter Steve Spurrier Jr. as well as his recruiter from Nebraska.

He said he has told no one of his decision.
